The Honorable Urashima Taro: A young fisherman rescues a vulnerable turtle from its tormentors. As a reward, he is taken to an undersea wonderland where he wins the favor of a prince and saves him. The fisherman becomes a prince; years pass unnoticed; his village wife and children are driven from his mind. But still the homesick prince longs for the changing seasons of his village and begs the prince to let him go back. The fisherman/prince thinks that he’s only been gone for a few days, but on his return to land, he makes the shattering discovery that many, many years have passed. The turtle calls to him that he can still return to the underwater world and to eternal youth. But now he must make his choice.
